"Aphrodite of Constantinople" is a beautiful Byzantine Era sculpted head of the Greek Goddess of Love. Unfortunately, some religious extremist carved a cross into her forehead and bore out her eyes. Disgusting pig. I hope that person is not in Heaven.
After hitting the Art Institute, I cabbed it to Shedd Aquarium and saw the nasty invasive Asian Carp, and a lot of other fishies.....enjoy the pics, might add some video I shot, too!!!!
Stay tuned for more from my trip to the Windy City!
